The spirit of Brazil meets luxury and extravagance at Pampas in the heart of downtown Palo Alto. Here, the authenticity of the Brazilian churrasco comes to a modern dining emporium where impromptu gatherings, romantic rendezvous? and large corporate events feel at home. On the plate, smoke meets spice, rusticity finds Moresophistication, tradition is re-imagined. Simply prepared meats are spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. Sample the array alongside one of our mixologist?s freshly muddled seasonal cocktails or a choice vintage selected by our sommelier. Take in the side bar, brimming with seasonal vegetables, fresh salads and artisan cheese; and watch our servers round the room with simply prepared meats, spit roasted to juicy perfection and sliced tableside without limit. At Pampas, we invite you to sit back, indulge and watch. Every meal is a show.

My first time here I was blown away by fast and friendly service. Unfortunately our waiter this time around was less than pleasing. Perhaps it was the fact he was paying a … Full review
  • Rating: 3.0 out of 5"Jul 16, 2014 · by Michelle H. from YelpWent here for my boyfriend's 25th birthday on a Sunday. It wasn't as packed so we got seated right away. This place is good if you can eat a lot since they give you so much meat. I thought the meats were marinated way too salty for my taste and the salad bar didn't offer much. Full review
